biggest victim in his death. thousands pay tribute to him in an emotional service. johnny depp under fire, and a golden rule of golf broken and you won't believe who is behind the wheel today. >> from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savanna guthrie we thank you for joining us. as a golfer, i'm gasping over let's get to the battle over the health care bill from senate republicans. >> it keeps the basic structure of the affordable care act, obamacare, that republicans have railed against, but there are sweeping changes. including the elimination of the mandate that required people to buy insurance.
7:02 am
it deepens the cuts to medicaid and it defunds planned parenthood. a vote could come as early as next week but republicans leaders have work to do. president trump is voicing his support, several gop senators say they will oppose the bill as it stands. >> top medical groups are weighing in, finding fault with the plan. the american academy of pediatrics claims certain cuts will hurt children. and the aarp is telling every senator to vote no. >> our political team ready to break it down. we'll also talk with senator rand paul, one of the republicans that's come out against the bill. let's begin with our national correspondent, peter alexander. >> reporter: good morning. the senate health care bill is out, but many aren't buying it, jeopardizing what leaders hoped would be a quick pass of it. a little negotiate is needed but blasting obamacare as a, quote, disaster. jeopardizing what leaders hoped
7:03 am
would be a quick vote to pass it. they are conceding a little negotiation is still needed, but blasting obama care as a disaster. >> president trump giving a grilling. >> some really great people, i have to say, mostly, a couple bad up withones, but that's oka. >> reporter: days after calling the white house health care bill mean, tweeting i'm very supportive of the senate version. after legislative surgery, senate republicans long-awaited obamacare replacement, flat lining. >> the current bill looks like we're keeping large parts of obamacare. >> reporter: four gop senators saying as is, it comes short. mr. trump telling fox news he hopes they'll come around. >> they'll probably get there. we have to see. health care is a very difficult situation.
7:04 am
>> reporter: but the president's party can only afford to lose two votes or it fails. >> i cannot support a bill in a is going to result in tens of millions of people losing their health insurance. >> reporter: so, what's in the bill? while it keeps key republican promises, like ending a mandate to buy insurance and defunding planned parenthood, the senate plan slashes subsidies for low and middle-income americans, turning that into tax cuts for high incomes. as for giving states money to end medicaid, that would begin in 2020 and the cuts would be deeper than the house plan. and opioid addiction, $2 million. just a fraction of what some republicans wanted to cover a growing national crisis. the senate's bill does include protections for those with pre-existing conditions. but no longer mandates states to
7:05 am
cover maternity care,mental held and e.r. visits. earlier on capitol hill -- >> no tax. >> reporter: more than 40 people, some in wheelchairs, arrested and dragged from outside of the office of the republican leader. democrats, defiant. >> these cuts are blood money. people will die. >> reporter: the senate plan even drawing a fierce rebuke from president obama. the senate bill unveiled today is not a health care bill, he wrote on facebook. it's a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in america. simply put, if there's a chance you might get sick, get old or start a family, this bill will do you harm. to be clear, supporters argue this bill will help fix a failing health care system while lowering insurance and premiums on the market for many americans. despite the president's praise, it does not line up with one of candidate trump's promises that he would not cut medicaid. the senate majority leader, mitch mcconnell, looking for a
7:06 am
vote on this bill next week. let's turn to rand paul who is with us now from washington. senator, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> as we mentioned, you are one of four republicans who oppose this bill because you think it's obamacare-light, it's not going far enough. let me quote the rolling stones for you. you can't always get what you want. if it comes down to this bill or no bill at all, would you rather doing in? >> i don't think the choices are binary. i think the choices are, do they want our votes or don't want our votes? they need two of the four of us, which means the bill has to get better. the current bill keeps the flaw of obamacare. if you can get insurance after you get sick, you will. and without the mandate, that adverse selection, the death spiral, the elevated premiums,
7:07 am
all that's going on gets worse under this bill. what this bill does is it dumps a bunch of taxpayer money into a stabilization fund and says we'll have cheaper insurance if we subsidize it. you could have cheaper cars if you have a stabilization fund for cars or iphones or stabilization. that's not been a republican idea to empty the treasury to lower prices because we have a $500 million deficit already this year. >> the reality is, if you and your conservative colleagues get what you want in this bill, moderates are not going to get what they want. how is mitch mcconnell supposed to navigate that catch-22 in seven days? >> we need to evaluate what we've been before. for six years we have run on repealing obamacare. right now, as the bill stands, the obamacare subsidies that everybody saying that we're going to die.
7:08 am
we have equal subsidies or exceeding obamacare subsidies. it looks like they're keeping it. we have more government subsidies in our bill than obamacare has. our bill may cost more in the first two years than obamacare cost. that's not repeal. >> under this plan that coverage for existing conditions stays. but states have the right to waive many of the essential benefits mandated by the aca, preventative care, maternity care, mental health treatment. you look at that list, isn't that the essence of health care coverage? >> well, here's the problem. and i think president obama had a big heart. and many democrats want to help people. but when you add mandates to insurance, you make it more expensive. my insurance has to include 12 things that are good for me. but what if my insurance costs $10,000 and i can't afford $10,000. i only make $30,000. i just drop out. also because you tell me, if you
7:09 am
get leukemia, you can buy in later. it's this perverse incentives. we have mandates that elevate the costs that people won't buy it and young people won't buy it. but we tell everyone, you can get it after you're sick. that's a terrible situation. that's what is destroying the insurance market. >> you talked about that. you said this republican plan keeps all those subsidies, continues to pour government money into health care. and you have president trump who has promised insurance for everybody. he promised on the campaign, everyone will be beautifully covered. that is a quote. >> i don't disagree with the president. i'm for insurance for everyone. my goal is the least expensive insurance for the most people. you know what does that better than any government program, when supply and demand meet, you get the most goods distributed to the most amount of people.
7:10 am
with the least amount of cost. that's when you have freedom in the marketplace to let prices go up and down. you let the consumer choose based on price. i'll give you an example of where it works, lasik surgery. that's a surgery i did, to help people get rid of their glasses. the price has gone down 75% over 15 years because consumers paid for it and they shop according to price. >> makes sense. pre-obamacare didn't we have a market system? >> not really. >> we didn't have insurance for everybody. >> this is the misunderstanding. a lot of people -- we blamed everything on obamacare. but the system was failing before obamacare. obamacare didn't make it better. i think it got worse. we're keeping fundamentally the problems. we had a fork in the road. before obamacare, the system was failing. insurance rates were going through the roof. under obamacare, it continued. you want the consumer to be connected to the product. when the consumer cares about the price, there's competition, the price comes down. if we have a sufficient belief
7:11 am
in the market system, that has made all -- you know, has given america her greatness, we can make health care great in this country. but you have to embrace freedom and capitalism. >> two seconds. is this going to pass? >> the bill has a chance. but it has to go in the direction of free markets and capitalism and choice. and you have to get rid of the regulations that are causing the prices go up. >> thank you. appreciate it. >> good to see you. thanks. let's bring in chuck todd. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> you heard senator paul's reservations. how is this going to play out over the next seven days? >> look, you have moderates that are not happy with it. you had susan collins there, a moderate for maine. lisa murkowski, moderate from alaska, upset with the coverage. you have the conservative angst here. i think rand paul has set a high bar for his support. and i think mitch mcconnell, the senate majority leader is trying to find a path to enough votes without rand paul.
7:12 am
i don't think this bill is going to get more conservative. if anything, i think it's possible this bill gets more generous on the medicaid front. you're going to have a couple of key governors, ohio, nevada, republican governors who have expanded medicaid, who have republican senators in their states who are on the fence on this. i think that's the path that happens here. but i tell you this -- mitch mcconnell, he's doing this in a week on purpose. it's shock and awe. you get it done in a week or it goes away in a week. >> a lot to watch over the next seven days. chuck, appreciate it. thank you very much. he's going to have much more on the new health care fight this sunday on "meet the press." there's new developments in the russia investigation this morning. the president making some controversial claims in a new interview. this after he acknowledged, no, he did not make secret recordings of his meetings with the former fbi director, james comey. nbc's chief white house correspondent, hallie jackson.
7:13 am
good morning. >> reporter: president trump appears to be questioning the credibility of special counsel robert mueller, accusing him of being too cozy with fired fbi director james comey. that's after republican leaders like paul ryan, say mueller should be allowed to do his job. and all it comes as the president facing a deadline today, is finally putting to rest a tapes mystery more than a month in the making. new this morning president trump raising doubts about special counsel robert mueller in an interview with fox news. >> he's very, very good friends with comey, which is very bothersome. >> reporter: a former intelligence official tells nbc news, mueller is investigating the president or possible obstruction of justice. >> there's been no collusion. no obstruction. and virtually everybody agrees to that. >> reporter: the comments coming after a 41-day drama. the president putting an end to a mystery he created when he implied there may have been tapes of conversations with the fbi he fired.
7:14 am
he says, i did not make or have any such recordings. >> i'm curious why this took so long. >> you asked for an answer. he gave you one. >> reporter: the senate gave until today for the president to talk about recordings of james comey. >> if the president didn't make tapes, why did he hang the idea of tapes over james comey's head? was he trying to intimidate him? >> reporter: the original tweet, may 12th. james comey better hope there's no tapes of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press. comey says when he saw that, he gave his memos, documenting conversations with the president, to a friend, to share publicly. >> i thought, that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel. for now, a he said/he said battle, that tapes could have settled. >> i have seen the tweet about tapes. lordy, i hope there are tapes. >> reporter: and new concerns about what president trump talked about with his director of national intelligence. according to an official
7:15 am
familiar with the conversation, dan coats told congressional investigators behind closed doors that he seemed obsessed with the russia probe and there was no evidence of collusion. and this morning, we're also taking a look at our latest nbc news poll. giving a snapshot into how americans view president trump. just 31% of people polled gave him high marks for being honest and trustworthy. matt? savannah? back to you. >> hallie, thank you. north korea has carried out another rocket engine test, apparently within the last 24 hours. this is the latest in a series of engine and missile trials by this regime this year. u.s. officials say this type of engine could be used for a space launch. but they fear it might actually be part of north korea's program to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile. meantime, a second american test of a missile defense system failed this week when it was unable to shoot down a target

call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.

9:28 am
good friday morning, we'll have cooler temperatures along the coastline today, upper 90s for the inland valleys. we're going to have pride festival happening all weekend long. tomorrow we'll have beautiful weather, a mix of sun and clouds, over the next few days, our temperatures continue to
9:29 am
cool for the inland valleys and we go to the upper 90s today to the lower 80s by tuesday of next week. let's get a update on the roads. >> pretty clear roadways, still talking about in service at the sunnyvale station. they inspeexpect the investigato continue for three more hours. it will cause delays around the peninsula. that is about it for the south bay, and the rest of your drive will go very well. back to you. >> that will do it for us right now, we'll be back with more news for you in 30 minutes.
9:30 am
back, now, with "today food." if you follow me an instagram, you'll notice i've been on a bit of a scallop kick lately. and usually on the grill. those were scallops and grits i did. i'm going to share my grilled scallops recipe. and i'm going to pair it with a recipe that i stole from melissa clark of "the new york times" for a lemon mint potato salad. >> do you like to cook? >> i don't. i don't have time for it. some people say it's relaxing. >> i find it very zen. especially when my daughter is a chef and she preps everything for me. i just have to cook it. >> there you go. >> but scallops, especially now, if you can get great day scallops, there's nothing better on the grill, or few things greater.
9:31 am
you can do this yourself or have your fishmonger. there's a muscle on there. and you cut that off. and get rid of that. you save it for a fish stock or something like that. this is as simple as it gets. here's the clean versions of it. you're basically going to put a little olive oil on it. >> do they have to be dry before you dress them? >> yes. you want them to be as try as possible. you pat them down. you basically want the sizzle. you don't want the extra moisture. that causes them to steam more than grill. you want a little salt and pepper on both sides. and then, you're going to put them on the grill. the great thing about scallops is they cook about as quickly as you want. rally, about two minutes a side, maybe, depending on the size of the scallops. and people say, i don't know if they're done or not. maybe they are overcooked. all you have to do is take a tooth pick. tina, one of our prep chefs told me this. now, put that on your lip.
9:32 am
is it warm or cold? >> one more time. a little cold. that's how you do it? >> once you know that it cooks on the other side -- >> can you double-dip the toothpick? >> that's why you have more than one. they're not that expensive. you grill them up. and the great thing about this, you think there's some sauce or something. it's just lemon. that creates the grill marks. the sweetness in the scallop and it brings it out. it's fantastic. now, do you like potato salad? >> yes. let's do it. i like eating all these things. >> a chance in just a second. small yellow potatoes. i like the yukon gold. you're going to start with a pot of cold water. heavily salted. it should be as salty as the sea. >> that's a lot. >> like the dead sea? >> the dead sea. the potatoes will float, no. it's not going to absorb all that much.
9:33 am
but it will flavor it a bit. you put your potatoes in here. and they will be covered by about an inch of water. >> okay. >> you're going to turn this up and let it boil 15 to 20 minutes. you want them to be fork-tender. you boil them peel and all. you take them out -- as soon as they're cool enough, you're going the cut them in quarters or halves. >> can you cut them before you boil them? >> you can. but the recipe calls for them to be whole. and it keeps them from getting mushy too quickly. you're going to take the olive oil and the juice of one lemon. and you're going to whisk this. it emulsifies pretty quickly. that's all you have to do. you can also add a little more salt. and a little more pepper. i've actually added some cilantro to it when you've done
9:34 am
this. and you take half a cup to a cup of shredded mint, fresh mint. you're going to put it in. >> i would never think mint and potatoes go together. they complement each other so much. >> you toss them. get a little handsy with the potato salad. and that's it. and the great part about it, there's no mayo. it's not going to go bad. you can take it to a picnic. and it's a little better when it's a little warm. >> my wife would be so happy if i did this. >> how great would it be? >> still don't know if i'm going to do it. >> you can do it. >> and still, so quick. probably the easiest recipe you can try. >> you're a big potato salad fan. >> i'm a fan. this is a totally different spin on potato salad. it's fresh.
9:35 am
you can actually taste the potatoes. mine i usually taste the mayo. >> i love seafood. this is great. >> try that this weekend. your family and friends will love it. i guarantee. and thank you to melissa clark. i stole that recipe from her. to get my recipes and melissa's recipe, go to today.com/food. coming up, the story of a real-life hero coming to the big screen. our natalie catches up with jake gyllenhaal for a behind the scenes sneak peek at his new movie "stronger," coming up next. visits with jake gyllenhaal and his new movie, "stropger," coming up next.

9:37 am
so i made a point to talk to my doctor. he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.

besides "bubble boy." i joke around with him about that. he's a cool dude. a huge star. a very genuine, nice person. >> reporter: did you give him any sort of instruction on how to be you? >> absolutely. i give him pointers on my hair all the time. just funny stuff. >> mess it up more. >> reporter: during my set visit, jake was preparing to do a scene where jeff throws out a pitch at the red sox game, just one month after the attack. who pitched better? you pitched better? >> without a doubt. without a doubt. he also has experience. you have more experience. >> that was his first pitch. >> more experience. >> reporter: have you been over to dinner and everything for the family? >> he's been to my house. he bought me -- i just did a renovation. he bought me a house warming gift. >> what was it? >> it was a toilet. >> yeah. the best one i saw.
